5.0 out of 5 stars A true explanation of seidr, 7 Jun. 2005
By 
F. Vd Smissen "Francien" (Maastricht, the Netherlands) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Nine Worlds of Seid-Magic (Paperback)
This book covers the North European, pre Christian beliefs of Seidr in a clear and concise way. She explores both the ancient beliefs of our ancestors through written lore and archaeological finds but also the modern reconstructionist movements in Seidr like Hrafnar.
Ther are numerous quotes from seidworkers on their experiences and worldviews for the reader to refer to as well.
The whole section on explaining the one word 'ergi' was probably over emphasising the point though in my opinion.
If you have an interest in seidr or shamanic practices in general this book is a must buy.
Jenny knows her stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roots of Yggdrasil, 18 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Nine Worlds of Seid-Magic (Paperback)
Adds to the small collection of books on seething we have, the author firmly fixes the tradition in a historical and cultural context, picking up the torch Aswynn dropped a few years back.
Also a worthy successor to the works of Jan Fries who dealt with the practical techniques, there's lots of inspiration for those who 'sit-out', tance dance or do seith in other ways.
Good investment for anyone who wants to learn about heathens, shamans and our ancestors.
